Managing Menopause Anxiety

Managing Menopause Symptoms. Anxiety.

Anxiety is a MAJOR concern for so many women throughout the menopause transition. Not just related to menopause hormones (lower progesterone) but to mid-life in general. One of the most important first considerations is to identify the source of any STRESS, then determine ways of managing that stress to the best of your ability.

Often asking for help, something we women don’t tend to be very good at, is the most significant step you can make. Without doing this then the following won’t be so effective, they’ll just be sticking plasters that wont stay on very long.

  • Identify stress and means of managing effectively
  • Prioritise yourself. Yes I did say that!
  • Practice relaxation techniques, meditation, yoga, journaling,
  • Include breathing techniques into your daily routine, especially when feeling anxious.
  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol, they promote the release of cortisol
  • Get adequate sleep
  • Ensure hydrated, drink 2 litres water minimum at optimum times of the day.
  • Include essential Omega 3 fats in your diet (eg nuts, seeds, avocados, oily fish) and also supplement with Omega 3
  • The supplement magnesium is calming
  • Herbal remedy St Johns Wort may be effective. (Caution if on medication and some supplements)
  • Exercise to release feel good hormones.
  • Practice the 5-4-3-2-1 Grounding Exercise
